Congress created a ruckus in the Rajya Sabha over this
The Congress on Thursday raised in the Rajya Sabha the matter of ED action against opposition leaders and deployment of large number of police personnel outside the residences of its top leaders, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. Raising these issues, Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge accused the central government of misusing central agencies and said that at a time when Parliament is going on, the ED has also summoned him. There was a heated argument between the ruling party and the opposition in the Rajya Sabha regarding this and both of them leveled allegations against each other.
Demand for discussion in the House on the issue
He said, “The House is meeting. I am also a member of this House and also the Leader of the Opposition. But I get the summons from the ED to come soon.” Kharge said that he has been called by the ED at 12.30 in the afternoon, so he wants to go to the ED office there to follow the law. He said, “I am being called by the ED when the House is going on, is it appropriate? ,
The Leader of Opposition said Parliament is in session and Delhi Police has cordoned off the residences of top Congress leaders and a large number of police forces have been deployed around it. “If we go on like this, will our democracy survive? Will we go by the constitution? They are doing this intentionally to discourage us. They are doing this to kill us, to scare, but we will not be afraid, we will fight.” Kharge demanded a discussion on the issue in the House.
Piyush Goyal called the allegations baseless
Leader of the House Goel countered Kharge’s allegations in the Rajya Sabha and termed the allegations leveled by him as baseless. He said that the government never interferes in the working of law enforcement agencies. Following this, Congress and other opposition members started a ruckus. Goyal said, “Perhaps in the Congress era, when they were in government, these people must have intervened. What the Leader of the Opposition has said is completely baseless. If someone has done any wrong, the law takes its own course.
